Marloes de Vries

Artist Laurie Simmons's latest show is called "Kigurumi, Dollers and How We See," and it opens tonight at Salon 94. After working on a more human scale in The Love Doll Days/Days 1-36, Simmons, who also happens to be the mother of Lena Dunham, decided to turn her eye to a Japanese subculture of cosplay (short for "costume play") or Kigurumi.
